This IDC Executive Brief analyzes the implications of the termination of Windows Server 2003 support in July 2015 and suggests best practices for organizations that are planning to migrate to a more up to date IT infrastructure.
This paper describes five use cases where offerings from Symantec can help IT move from a sluggish environment to one that is more agile and able to respond strategically and tactically to emerging technologies, opportunities, business models and competitive threats.
By delivering the right services in the right way, to the right users, IT can help businesses seize opportunities and respond to competitive threats quickly, thereby serving the business's future rather than preserving yesterday's legacy solutions. This paper explores best-practices like re-inventing the IT infrastructure as a SDDC. With the right management tools to address the risks, the SDDC's virtual environment can be the right solution for many forward-thinking organizations that must compete at the speed of thought.
This document explains how Symantec NetBackup can be configured to protect a Cisco Unified Computing System™ (Cisco UCS®) domain.
In this report, Enterprise Storage Group (ESG) performed a series of tests with NetBackup 7.6 to measure the performance of VMware backups and restores using Accelerator, Replication Director, and Instant Recovery. Read more to find out what they discovered.
This ESG Lab review documents hands-on testing of the Symantec NetBackup 5230 appliance, a backup solution for physical and virtual environments. Testing focused on getting started with the appliance and data protection efficiency.
Evaluate virtual backup software to end the arguing between virtual and backup admins
In this white paper, ESG Senior Analyst Jason Buffington validates the claim that NetBackup 7.5 can perform backups up to 100x faster than traditional backups through testing and audits.
You cannot effectively manage, recover, dedupe or protect what you can’t see. NetBackup with V-Ray breaks down virtual vs. physical silos and delivers simple, yet comprehensive backup and recovery.
Hear existing customers discuss how NetBackup, NetBackup Appliances, and Backup Exec are helping them drive down backup costs and drive out complexity in this white paper from Cascade Insights.
With cost pressures and complexity frustrating many backup teams, a platform approach across physical and virtual environments is becoming the new normal, especially as virtual workloads become mission-critical in nature. Hear existing customers, interviewed by Cascade Insights, discuss how Symantec delivers as a continuing leader in the backup space, with solution innovation that exceeds their emerging needs.
This paper discusses several different backup and recovery mechanisms including source deduplication, target deduplication, virtualization-aware backup, near-CDP, and CDP.
This paper provides a structured approach to assessing the advantages of the appliance model.
VMware’s vStorage API for Data Protection (VADP) has revolutionized virtual machine protection, however, to fully realize these capabilities you need the proper tools. Symantec and Cisco have teamed up to show how using Symantec NetBackup 7’s native integration with the vStorage API and Cisco’s Unified Computing System (UCS) architecture can protect terabytes of virtual machine data.
